I am an associate professor of philosophy at Duke Kunshan University and associate professor of the practice of global studies at Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, Duke University.  I also co-direct the Center for Analytic Philosophy at Renmin University of China.  My research lies at the intersection of philosophy of mind and philosophy of religion but I am interested in many other areas of philosophy: metaphysics and epistemology, philosophy of science, experimental philosophy, and ethics. I also teach computer science courses and am developing pedagogical tools to teach philosophy through computational concepts.

I received my Ph.D. (2011) from Cambridge University in History and Philosophy of Science and received my B.A. (1998) and M.S. (2001) in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley and U.C. Davis.
